Chartis returns to AIG name

Chartis Australia has gone back to being called AIG Australia Limited name as part of a global rebrand sparked by their strong economic recovery in the past four years. 
 

Internationally, AIG has completed the repayment to the US Government of US$182b, as well as bringing US government ownership in the company to just under 16% (September 2012). At current valuation, the remaining government ownership is worth approximately US$8b.

The rebrand follows research conducted with global customers and partners that revealed the AIG brand to be a stronger representation of the company's objectives.  

AIG CEO Noel Condon says, "AIG has over 50 years of history in Australia and we take pride in the fact that the AIG brand is widely recognised in the country. The return to our former name truly exhibits a new and exciting phase of our organisation."

D&O premium pool ‘must treble’ to return to profitability

A new report – called "Show Me The Money!" by insurer XL Catlin and law firm Wotton + Kearney – is the second in a series of three white papers on securities class actions and their impact on the Directors & Officers Liability (D&O) market. The main conclusion is that Directors’ and officers’ (D&O) insurance premiums are under-priced significantly and need to rise strongly to restore profitability. The main risk areas are those exposed to securities class actions, 

It says Directors & Officer's Side A, Side B and Side C cover has been chronically underpriced since at least 2011, while the frequency of class actions is increasing as more plaintiff lawyers and litigation funders enter the space.

The analysis suggests last year’s overall premium pool of about $210 million would need to increase by at least three times to establish a profitable market, if it is assumed all other factors stay unchanged.

“Recent market developments would indicate most D&O insurers are now endeavouring to restore some semblance of profitability to their portfolios after years of market losses,” the report says.
